Evidence of election fraud in the United States is growing, but it cannot be upheld in court. U.S. President Donald Trump, citing media reports for the first time on December 10, denounced election fraud as a “coup.”
U.S. Intelligence chief John Ratcliffe is expected to release an assessment of foreign interference in the U.S. election on Friday, which could allow Trump to take action against “traitors” if it is confirmed. Look at the history of the United States, which presidents have exercised the Counterinsurgency Act.
During the Civil War, In the Counterinsurgency Act passed under President Jefferson in 1807, Lincoln Key ordered the closure of hundreds of northern newspapers that opposed him and the arrest of their owners and editors. Arrest an Ohio Congressman for speaking out against him. And he signed a warrant for the arrest of Chief Justice Tani, who ruled him unconstitutional.
In the early 1900s, three U.S. presidents used the Counterinsurgency Act.
In 1943, Roosevelt sent troops to Quell race riots in Detroit. In 1957, Eisenhower, acting on the governor’s “inaction,” sent troops to quell a racially motivated riot at an Arkansas school.
In 1968, During the riots that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., Lyndon Johnson sent troops to three cities.
The most recent was in 1992, when president George H.W. Bush sent nearly 4,000 troops to Los Angeles to quell a major riot.
Retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General David McInerney (2020.12.4) : “We want the White House to know that the September 2018 executive order to activate the Counterinsurgency Act and declare martial law is a national emergency that will determine whether we continue to move forward as a democratic republic or move toward a totalitarian society.”
Retired Air Force Lieutenant General David McInerney has also publicly called on Trump to invoke the Counterinsurgency Act. And this week, The Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, is expected to release an assessment of foreign interference in the election, which will be a key basis for whether President Trump enforces martial law, military rule or counterinsurgency.
